Minneapolis, MN — Mar 26, 2019 — / — Code42, the leader in next-gen data loss protection, announced that Ananth Appathurai has joined the company as its senior vice president of strategic partnerships and corporate development. Ananth brings to his position deep expertise in the security industry and an impressive track record of helping companies expand their businesses through strategic partnerships with some of the most innovative software and technology companies, including Cisco Systems, Citrix Systems, McAfee, Microsoft and VMware.

He brings valuable experience working with some of the world’s leading technology and security brands,” said Joe Payne, Code42′s president and CEO. “We plan to build partnerships that complement our new Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection solution, while taking aim at the legacy approaches to data loss prevention (DLP) that our customers have said are fundamentally broken.”

The company’s innovative approach to data security is freeing companies from the overwhelming constraints of traditional DLP,” said Ananth. “Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection secures data in cloud services, like Google Drive, and across endpoints without the painful policies, productivity roadblocks and costly deployments that lead to failed legacy DLP implementations. Through a strategic partner program, we will have new opportunities to drive unparalleled value for Code42′s customers.”

In his career as a business development, alliance and partner management executive, Ananth has built significant experience and expertise in helping companies develop, execute and monetize strategic partnerships.
